Thoreau for your Tuesday… “Live in each season”…

“Live in each season as it passes;breathe the air,drink the drink,taste the fruit,and resign yourself to the
influences of each.Let them be your only diet drink and botanical medicines…Open all your pores and bathe in all the tides of Nature,in all her streams and oceans, at all seasons…Men have discovered-or think they have discovered-the salutariness of a few wild things only,and not of all nature.Why,”nature” is but another name for health,and the seasons are but different states of health.Some men think that they are not well in spring,or summer,or winter;it is because they are not well in them.”

From Thoreau’s Journal v,394-395 23aug. 1853
